News Release:

Business Wire - September 28, 1999 07:25
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 28, 1999--eConnect forms (OTB:BB:ECNC) is targeting a November test of its ePIN placing government sanctioned Ireland in home Same-as-Cash(TM) gaming transactions on eSportsbet.

The ePIN, an inexpensive simple hardware device that links between the keyboard and the home computer, will be used to originate Same-as-Cash(TM) gaming transactions with a bank issued ATM card.

eConnect will be actively working with E-SAFE to test government sanctioned in home Ireland Same-as-Cash(TM) sports wagers being sent by the ePIN to eSportsbet as Ireland automatically taxes such winnings.

In Ireland, eConnect will use the inexpensive ePIN, the home computer and an ATM card and bank assigned PIN to originate Same-as-Cash gaming transactions to eSportsbet, which eConnect has an exclusive global Same-as-Cash processing contract with.

Ireland taxes such transactions at 5%, and this is the business model which eConnect believes will lay the groundwork for worldwide government acceptance of Internet gaming transactions.
